This race began 22 years ago and what started off as a small gathering aimed at growing support and excitement for local open space is now a major recreation event for people of all ages.

This iconic event has something for everyone; whether pushing through the 30K dash, scrambling through hills and trees with the 5K or 12K races, or taking time to sniff the wild roses in the non-competitive 5K Dog Walk, all are invited to celebrate our local wild lands and our connection to them. Stick around afterwards for a party in the park with food, live music, and family-friendly fun.

Funds from this race support ongoing projects like the Mount Ascension and Mount Helena land acquisitions, South Hills trail maintenance, and Tenmile Creek Park. It’s all about coming together, celebrating our unifying love of fresh air, and just letting off some steam and running wild.

Register now for the 30K, 12K, 5K races or the 5k dog walk. Kids under 13 run for free!
